Knee Surgery at Medical City Frisco
Knee osteoarthritis is a condition that affects the joints within the knee. The surface inside the joints becomes damaged and does not move smoothly. The cartilage that is covering the bones becomes rough and thin, and the bone underneath thickens. As a result, the joints become more active as if the body is trying to repair itself. The bone at the edge of the joint grows outwards, forming bony spurs called osteophytes. The synovium may thicken and make extra fluid. The capsule and ligaments thicken slowly and contract as if they were trying to make the joints more stable.
